Blackstone Surf and Turf Quesadillas
Blackstone Surf and Turf Quesadillas are like a fancy meal that you can still eat in your comfy clothes.
Extra special because…well… it’s surf and turf.
But no need to take it seriously because it’s served as a quesadilla.
And not just any quesadilla because we are making these on the Blackstone griddle.
Extra yummy and easy to make on the large cooking space.
How to Make Blackstone Surf and Turf Quesadillas
Start with a pound of steak and cut it into bite size pieces.
I used New York strip, but really most cuts of steak would be just fine.
Put the steak in a gallon size plastic bag with Worcestershire sauce, garlic, kosher salt, pepper, and your favorite steak seasoning if you have one.
Massage the bag until the steak is coated.
And place in the fridge to marinate for a few hours.
For the “surf” part of this meal I am using shrimp.
A pound of jumbo shrimp that I peeled and deveined and put into a bowl.
Just toss them with lemon juice and Old Bay seasoning.
You’ll want to do this about 10 minutes before cooking.
Shrimp will get tough if they marinate for too long.
I love putting everything I need on a tray when cooking outdoors.
So on a tray put the steak, shrimp, large burrito size tortillas, and lots of cheese 🙂
Preheat the griddle to medium heat and once it’s nice and hot, add some cooking oil and the steak.
Cook the steak a minute or two by themselves.
Tossing with hibachi spatulas a few times.
Then add the seasoned shrimp and cook 2 to 3 more minutes, tossing and flipping as they cook.
Once the steak and shrimp are cooked, move them to one side of your griddle.
Add a little more oil and two tortillas.
This will make four pretty big quesadillas total, but I like making two at a time.
Add some cheese to one side of each tortilla first.
And lots of shrimp and steak.
More cheese over top and the use the hibachi spatulas to fold the empty side over the filled side.
Flip them and cook these as long as you need to melt the cheese and to get the crisp you prefer on the tortillas.
Repeat with the other two quesadillas and it’s time to eat!
I put them right on the tray I used to carry everything out.
Serve Blackstone Surf and Turf Quesadillas with toppings of choice 🙂
I set out some sour cream, hot sauce, jalapenos, and salsa.
Then everyone just topped theirs how they like.
